Happy Easter Weekend. Hope you're having fun filled weekend!? Are you planning something nice over the weekend?
Not sure what we are up to yet. We are always rushing around at last minute making plans. We are making plans around the weather so we could be going anywhere. Indoors or outdoors!? The weather is so changeable at the minute.
Today I am sharing this Cinnamon And Cardamon Flan for an Easter treat. This flan has cinnamon in it to taste (I love anything with cinnamon in it). Everything smells amazing when cooking with cinnamon in. Also topped with pistachios. How yummy!!
Product: Pyrex Glass Flan Dish
Cooking time: 40 minutes
How To Make A Cinnamon And Cardamon Flan:

How to make Cinnamon And Cardamon Flan. :
- Crush the cardamom pods gently and remove the dark seeds to crush to a fine powder.
- Add all the ingredients together and mix well, making sure the egg is beaten up.
- Pour into a Pyrex glass flan dish and bake at 150°C for 40 minutes.
- The flan is baked when the centre reaches 74°C.
- Chill the flan thoroughly.
- Just before serving sprinkle an even layer of demerara sugar over the flan (40-50g)
- Using a blowtorch, caramelise the sugar to give a crispy crackling surface without cooking the flan.
